Efforts will be made to build a carbon neutral standard system for carbon peaks in the energy sector, and promote digital technology innovation. Accelerate the application of 5G and blockchain in the energy field, promote the large-scale market-oriented development of new energy storage, and explore new development models for hydrogen energy and integrated smart energy services.
4. Unswervingly deepen system and mechanism reforms
——”Improve the energy legal system and promote the construction of an effective competitive market system”
Speed up the construction of a unified national electricity market system. Establish and improve the coordinated operation, integrated development, standardized and unified trading rules and technical standards of all levels of the electricity market, strengthen the overall connection of the medium and long-term market, the spot market and the auxiliary service market, promote the improvement of the electricity price transmission mechanism, and effectively balance the supply and demand of electricity.
Actively promote power market-oriented transactions. We will deepen mid- and long-term power transactions and continue to expand the scale of market transactions. Deepen the construction of the power spot market, and promote the transfer of qualified spot pilots into long-term operation. Actively promote the cost of auxiliary services to the user side, fully tap the flexible adjustment capabilities on both sides of supply and demand through the market mechanism, and promote the participation of new energy in market transactions in an orderly manner.
Solidly promote the reform of the oil and gas pipeline network. Support and guide the provincial pipeline network to integrate into the national pipeline network in a market-oriented manner, actively promote the construction and interconnection of oil and gas trunk pipelines, promote the separation of transportation and marketing of provincial pipeline network operators, and encourage users to independently select gas supply paths and gas supply sources.
Continue to deepen the reform of “delegating control, delegating control to service”. Promote the reform of the administrative examination and approval system, and promote the full coverage of the reform of “separation of licenses and licenses” in the energy sector. Optimize enterprise-related services and break through blocking points to create a good environment for the development of new industries, new business models and new models such as distributed power generation nearby market-oriented transactions, microgrids, and integrated energy services.
Continue to promote the construction of energy law. Speed up the formulation of the Energy Law, revise the Electricity Law, the Coal Law, and the Renewable Energy Law, and advance the formulation of oil reserve regulations.
5. Improving the efficiency of energy supervision
——”Fair supervision to ensure fair competition”
Optimize the electricity business environment. Continue to improve the service level of “Access to Electricity”, and effectively improve the satisfaction and sense of acquisition of electricity.
Strengthen market supervision in key areas. Deepen the supervision of power grids and oil and gas pipeline networks, increase the supervision of fair opening, operation scheduling, price costs, contract performance, power purchases from the grid, and unplanned outages of units, and strive to create a fair competitive market environment.
Strengthen power safety supervision. Establish a power safety indicator system, establish a safety audit work mechanism, pilot the construction of power safety production standardization and safety education and training systems, pay attention to the special supervision of team safety and new energy safety, and promulgate the “Power Reliability Management Measures (Interim).”
Strengthen the construction of the supervision system. Vigorously promote the “double random, one open” supervision model, promote the construction of a new credit-based supervision mechanism, and carry out credit supervision pilots. Strengthen the administrative law enforcement of energy supervision, set up the 12398 energy supervision hotline, unblock the Internet and other new channels for complaints and reports, and effectively increase the investigation and punishment of violations of laws and regulations.
6. Comprehensively expand international energy cooperation
——”Steady increase of my influence on global energy governance”
Make overall plans for energy cooperation among major powers. Actively promote the construction and operation of the Sino-Russian Eastern Route Natural Gas Pipeline and the Sino-Russian Crude Oil Pipeline, and build the Tianwan and Xudabao nuclear power plants with high quality and high standards, and promote the creation of a closer Sino-Russian energy partnership. Implement the important consensus of the video meeting between the heads of state of China and the United States, and promote dialogue and exchanges between the two sides in the fields of energy security, natural gas and new energy. Continue to deepen China-EU energy pragmatic cooperation, relying on the existing dialogue mechanism and cooperation platform to promote policy exchanges and the implementation of demonstration projects of innovative cooperation between enterprises.
High-quality advancement of energy cooperation under the “Belt and Road” initiative. Deepen the interconnection of energy infrastructure, and continue to promote power interconnection with neighboring countries. Focus on key countries, key areas, and key projects, and continuously improve the level of cooperation.
